    There's no point in PM-ing me because I don't have enough posts to answer. I like to reply to threads, and I believe it helps the forum when I do. But I seldom have reason to start a new thread. So it may be quite a while before I can ever answer.

    As an alternative, I would suggest that anyone, even a new member, should be allowed to RESPOND to a PM, since it may be in the best interests of the forum and the person sending it. It's your call. I'm not particularly vexed by it. :)

    This has been discussed before, the reason why you must have at least 15 post count to PM other people is due to spam, in many forums out there where you can join and PM ppl right away, lost of members end up getting spammy PMs. So therefor BHW decided to make a 15 post count so then you are able to PM other users.

    what he means I think is that they should be allowed to respond to PM's not send them. I think that's a viable suggestion just that I don't think it's that hard to get your post count up to the minimum.

    Oh I misunderstood, well still ppl would be abusing like "PM me how to get $500 per day" bla bla bla... already happens but people fail to respond ....


    I doubt this rule can be changed.

    Just make 15 quality posts , and you are good to go.

    Any body that is serious about BHW will pass the 15 post threshold easily... without having to post bs post just to increment your post count...

    I think it should actually be raised to a higher number...

    Not a bad idea actually, I'd support this.
